Topsoe’s technologies are set to reduce its customers’ greenhouse gas emissions by 12 million tonnes in 2022 alone, the company revealed.
The company added that these reductions will not be one-offs but ongoing for the years to come. The key driver is Topsoe’s renewable fuels solutions, producing low-carbon fuels from waste and biomass.
This year’s GHG reduction target reflected the company’s ambition to take the lead on decarbonisation and its commitment to UN Sustainable Development Goal no 13 on Climate Action.
Roeland Baan, CEO at Topsoe, commented: “Effectively reducing carbon emissions requires a coordinated effort from individual countries, companies and citizens. At Topsoe, we are ready to take the lead in accelerating those efforts.
“We have made it our mission to reduce our customers’ emissions by 12 million tonnes this year, and we will continue this work beyond 2022. Renewable fuels like renewable jet fuel and diesel are vital components in solving the net zero equation, to transform the global economy into one that is not dependent on fossil fuels.”
The 12 million tonnes target is equivalent to removing about 8% of the emissions from the EU’s entire aviation industry.
Topsoe also has a leading position in “blue” technologies, where CO2 from the production of hydrogen and ammonia is captured and stored safely underground, and in developing Power to X-solutions enabling decarbonisation of the hard to abate-sectors such as steel, cement, and mining from electrolysis.
